The Tall Man (2012)
« on: July 12, 2012, 01:43:13 AM »

In an isolated, slowly dying mining town, children are vanishing without a trace – abducted, the townsfolk whisper, by a mysterious entity known locally as “The Tall Man.” Town nurse Julia Denning (Biel) seems skeptical…until her young son David disappears in the middle of night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia lives every parent’s darkest nightmare in this twisting, shock-around-each-corner thriller from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier.

US cinematic release 31 August, Europe the following week.

Reviews I've seen so far are best described as "mixed."

This really reminds me of a book called "The Devils Footsteps" A really good book I read as a kid... its similar but differant at the same time.

For this reason I'm TOTALLY STOKED about this movie- can't wait :) thanks for sharing!

Haunted highway did a show on the the tall man, didn't realize it had it's basis in native american myth.
